In the context of elections, campaigning is what candidates do to get votes - it's not just handing out leaflets though! Successful candidates take time to listen and speak to students, find out about the current issues relevant to the role they're standing for and persuade voters with ideas and enthusiasm. Don’t worry if this all sounds a bit daunting because all candidates have to attend a briefing where we’ll provide some tips and tricks.
There are regulations surrounding campaigning behaviour. Candidates must not supply or handle voters devices. Candidates for Club and Soceity postions should also not be campaigning outside of specific Club and Societies spaces, e.g. closed groups, socials etc.
Candidates for Clubs & Societies and Nerve Media positions should also not be campaigning outside of their specific times. To find out more information please read the election regulations
